Always the downside ... aye johngalt?
I for one considered it. If I understand correctly, even if I had the subscription and dled a copy of the RTM 7600, I would still need a "product key" to continue using the RTM? I have to buy that don't I?
I know there are other benefits, but as a home user I do not have room or interest to beta test the other software available. So ... I will just continue to wait ... patiently ... until after October 22 to get my paid copy. (sigh)
Not to say it wouldn't be great for others!
